Spring 2019 - Dr. Dee is one of, if not the, best professors at UCLA!!! Absolutely hilarious, engaging, helpful, etc. You just give three speeches throughout whole quarter and then one paper... he is not a harsh grader whatsoever. Classes begin with discussions; he'll randomly call on people but you get used to it and nothing is taken too seriously -- it makes the class super fun. Even if you're not trying to do Comm, take this class for an easy A, a place to improve your public speaking skills (don't be scared, some people in your class will be very very bad lol), and to experience Dr. Dee!
Winter 2020 - Great class! You are assigned three speeches to make, and a final paper. Everyone in the class is really supportive of one another and we all became quite close and open with one another, this made the public speaking aspect a lot easier. Dr. Dee is an amazing lecturer and I learned a lot from him. This is an amazing class to take and incredibly useful as well. The work is not overwhelming by any means and I would 100% recommend anyone take this class. If you're an international student or a STEM major, or even if you feel confident with public speaking, still take this class. It's amazing!
Winter 2020 - This was a great Fiat Luxe. Every week we get a movie assigned to watch and an article to read. The movie and article connect to a large theme in psychology/therapy. We then have a discussion in class that Dr. Dee amazingly coordinates. Amazing professor, he's a great speaker, really engaging and is so positive. Take this class if you can!
